Following on from our highlight of the amazing Christian AIDS, I have found another right little shiner for y’all.
Beat Connection are two young lads from Seattle that play lovely dreamy synth pop. Remember last year when Toro y Moi and Neon Indian made summer feel special again? These guys might do the same for you this year. Although their EP Surf Noir came out in 2010, they are releasing single In The Water this month. We all know Moshi Moshi get the coolest bands, and their excellent reputation should carry this band far! They play Stag and Dagger on Thursday AND there is a launch party at Old Blue Last with Vice that you can go to for nothing on 23rd May. We will be there; it’s a Monday, and everyone likes a gig on a Monday. They are in the UK for a little while promoting their stuff so you should be able to find somewhere to see them via their Myspace. They are playing in London four times this month alone so you definitely have your opportunity.
Such a good video! Their aesthetic is down to a T. Glo-fi dream pop bumpy summer dance music; this will be played by your resident DJs when the club night lands. One more then:
